  • Thanks for that! I was too focused on the main lighting and didn't watch as much. I'll have to remember that, good advice.
  • Created discussions Letter to Santa
    From my annual "Niece and Nephew Christmas Shoot" (my chance to take pictures, fill them full of candy, and send them home with their parents).
  • That's the problem with spies these days! :D
  • Really? Nikon has 5 and Canon has 3, so FF cameras do exist, they're not a mythical beast. Ah, the crux of the matter... Do you know why? It's because of what I just noted. Other brands have it, ...
  • I read that thread a little so I think he has a case, the argument there was trollish and inane... I would have preferred to see a moderator shut it down, but it didn't happen. Fortunately, the ...
  • Why are some obsessed with staying only APS-C? The remainder of your post is, effectively, a statement that "I don't need FF, so nobody else should either!" Who are you then to decide what others ...
  • The costs for machines that can handle modern FF cameras with high resolution are a fraction of the cost of your gear. Hmm... if you felt a need to post this, I suspect you're in denial on the ...
  • I think most of us begging Pentax for FF jumped ship already, to be fair, but I suspect that was barely a dent when it was all said and done, really. However, I think a lot of Pentaxians, over the ...
  • What myth, exactly, are you talking about? I'm not entirely sure why you quoted those two words, did you intend sarcasm? I have to ask since the rest of your post implies otherwise.
  • Replied in Silly thread
    You may want to rethink that equivalency statement... I haven't checked your math, since it's not really relevant, except to say that APS-C can't make up for pixels it doesn't have. In addition, ...
  • Replied in Silly thread
    So, despite the fact that FF prices have been dropping rapidly over the last number of years, you're arguing that they won't... FF is in the price territory that I was paying for APS-C a few years ...
  • FF is priced below $1700 now (Sony) and very recent model second-hand FF cameras can be bought for substantially less if you're willing to buy used (which many are). The barrier to entry for ...
  • I didn't know you were a strategist for either company, that's cool... Except that Nikon and Canon are both producing FF cameras spec'd to the consumer market and with prices that have been lower ...
  • Replied in Silly thread
    A few years ago, the price of FF was above most buyers and there was no consumer option. Today, there are at least 3 FF cameras that are consumer oriented and 2 others that are on the cusp and ...
  • Replied in Silly thread
    Very true... I agree with your sentiment and your subject, but... Nikon now has 5 FF offerings and Canon has 3. Both have FF offerings clearly aimed at the consumer market and it's really a matter ...
  • Actually, I think the time is here or, at least, much closer than 2021. Nikon has 5 full frame bodies and Canon has 3, that's a shift that's only going to continue. I think APS-C days are very ...
  • The D800/D810 is the kind of camera I could see coming from Pentax. It's why I picked it, it's not just the resolution, but that it felt much more Pentax-like than the alternatives. Price points ...
  • Replied in Cutie. :)
    Yes, it seems soft to me. Your aperture is very wide, so your depth of field is very thin and your focus seems to be just in front of her eye at her cheek, nose, and the edge of her hand. So,with ...
  • Replied in Cutie. :)
    With the D7100, I think I would have chosen to push the ISO up a fair bit to get a faster shutter speed and more in focus, especially her near eye. Nevertheless, the photo itself is quite ...
  • Very nice. I like the first one more, which seems to be against the tide here. In any event, I find that she seems to be more engaged with the viewer there. Either way, both are very good, well done. ...
